Driven by high quantities and material costs, components are getting slimmer and lighter. Nevertheless, the strength requirements must be met. Many engineers face this task. One approach is to optimize the topology with Simcenter NASTRAN.

Starting with the installation space, a new design can be determined here with the restriction of manufacturing influences and strength values. The calculation engineer is freed from the manual creation of many variants and can have the best design generated automatically.
